Pass it on


Ma daddy sat upon his daddy's knee
Ma grandpa tellin' of his family

Pass it on, pass it on

Tellin' stories of a-long ago
When he was young and what he'd got to know

Pass it on, pass it on

Passin' on all the happiness and kindness
And the love that he got from down the line
Like all good parents to their kids through generations
As they grow together movin' on in time

Pass it on, pass it on
From days long gone, pass it on

Ma daddy did the same ole' thing with me
Preparing me for my own family

Pass it on, pass it on

He tried to give me everything I'd need
So I could pass it on to my own seed

Pass it on, pass it on

Passin' on all the happiness and kindness
And the love that he got from down the line
Like all good parents to their kids through generations
As they grow together movin' on in time

Pass it on, pass it on
From days long gone, pass it on

So now I find myself in Daddy's chair
A-sittin' on my knee my son and heir

Pass it on, pass it on

And now I'm passin' on all that I know
My son'll do the same before he goes

Pass it on, pass it on

Passin' on all the happiness and kindness
And the love that he got from down the line
Like all good parents to their kids through generations
As they grow together movin' on in time

Passin' on all the happiness and kindness
And the love that he got from down the line
Like all good parents to their kids through generations
As they grow together movin' on in time

Pass it on, pass it on
From days long gone, pass it on (etc)
